This is my final card from my class What To Do With Your Scraps class. I think this is my favorite of all of them. I am not sure if it because I love the DSP English Garden, or Night of Navy, or butterflies or just all of it. I will definitely be making a bunch of these cards. I used the stamp set Rose Garden and it comes with 4 different sayings. That gives you a lot of options.
I used the following products to make this card:
Thick Whisper White Card Stock #140272
- cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" score at 4 1/4"
- cut at 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"
Night of Navy Card Stock #100867
- 1 1/2" x 3 1/2"
- scrap for the butterfly
English Garden DSP #138440
- cut one at 1 1/2" x 4 1/4"
- cut one at 1 1/2" x 4"
Whisper White Card Stock #100730
- scraps for the Happy Birthday Saying
I started making this card by stamping the scattered dots stamp out of the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set in Night of Navy all over the 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" paper. I then took Early Espresso and sponged it all around the edges of the paper. This softened up the look a little bit which what I wanted.
Take your three 1 1/2" pieces of paper and use the Banner Triple Punch on all three of them. I then sponged early espresso around all of the edges.
I adhered the banners starting with the one on the right lining it up on the top and right side of the paper. I gently laid the left on my paper, DO NOT push down until you get it right where you want it. I then lightly put the blue banner on top to make sure it was centered. I did not put adhesive on the blue banner yet. When I get them the way I want them I then press hard on the left hand banner. Then put adhesive on the blue banner and adhere to the paper.
I knew I wanted to finish the top with something as I didn't like the looks of the banner tops staring at me. I found my Night of Navy seam binding ribbon, which looked great. I wrapped that around the top and adhered it on the back of the paper. This will also hide any little blemishes you may have. You can now adhere this piece of paper to your card!
I used a scrap piece of Night of Navy and used the framelit Bold Butterflies to cut out a butterfly for the front. I love the detail on this framelit! I put a rhinestone in the middle to give it a little bit of bling.
The Happy Birthday came from the Rose Garden stamp set with coordinating framelits. I just love this set! You can do so much with it. I did you dimensionals to give the Happy Birthday a little bit of dimension.
On the inside of the card I stamped the coordinating stamp to the Happy Birthday in Rose Garden Stamp Set.
I hope you enjoyed all the cards in this series of What To Do With Your Scraps. I had a lot of fun coming up with these cards. Now you can go use your scraps and make a bunch of cards!
Have a wonderful weekend!
